Benefits of Essential Oils

Essential oils have long been used to support vibrant health. They are traditionally used in one of three ways: topical (often diluted with a cold-pressed fruit or nut oil depending on the essential oils used), inhalant (often used with hydrotherapy steam) or internal (oils taken in water to help digestive upset). When choosing essential oils it is important to look for oils that have been created using stringent purity standards. As with any other therapeutic item, you want to ensure the safety of yourself and your family.

We will now take a look at the benefits of the three oils in the DoTerra Essential Oil Introductory Kit.  Lavender, Lemon and Peppermint are well known for their soothing and anti-inflammatory effects on the body. Lavender and Lemon oil are also known natural anti-histamines. This is especially beneficial during the allergy season in the DC Metro area. Peppermint is often used to calm respiratory and digestive upsets. Lemon can help to relieve excess mucus. A blend of all three in a steaming bowl of water would be a wonderful way to combat the swollen and inflamed nasal passages and sinus pressure you may be experiencing while the pollen count is high. When used appropriately, essential oils can help you use the natural world to tap into your own vitality.
